Dr. Amy Stanway

Dermatologist • MBChB FRACP

Dr Stanway is an experienced Dermatologist with a special interest in skin cancer work and rashes. She provides full skin checks and treatment of any suspicious skin lesions, particularly focusing on early detection of melanoma.  She specialises in the management of common but difficult inflammatory dermatoses such as childhood and adult eczema, psoriasis, acne and allergies. She also has great experience in the management of less common skin, hair, nail, and genital disorders.

Her desire to help people with distressing skin diseases achieve control of their condition and get back to a normal life, sees Dr Stanway work with people of all ages suffering from skin disease.

Dr Stanway has practised in the Bay of Plenty since 2006. She graduated from the University of Otago in 1997. She then worked at Rotorua Hospital and Waikato Hospital in a wide range of Medical and Surgical specialities, including Dermatology, before embarking on a fellowship programme in Advanced Dermatology at The Queens' Medical Centre, Nottingham, United Kingdom. She is a full Fellow of the New Zealand Society of Dermatology and the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.  She has loved her return to the Bay of Plenty in 2006 with her family, and the full, relaxed lifestyle Tauranga provides.

As a mother of school aged children herself, Dr Stanway has particular empathy for children and teens with skin disorders, her calm and friendly manner ensuring consultations are as stress-free as possible. Dr Stanway enjoys being part of our multi-disciplinary team that offers diagnosis and treatment, medical dermatology, histopathology and cosmetic skin care. In her free time she loves to make the most of all the Bay has to offer along with her GP husband and three children, who are very involved in a variety of sports, music and dance activities.
